Sylvia Wilson, a junior at Temple University in Philadelphia, caught word that Michael B. Jordan would be filming a few movie scenes on her campus. While she initially just joked about sending the star a direct message on Instagram, she later built up enough courage to actually do it.

Pretty soon, she was reading a response from the "Black Panther" actor, and she admits she "almost passed out," she told The Huffington Post.

After a brief exchange, Jordan invited her to his set to snag a picture and told her she didn’t even have to bring the smoothie.

Once the two set up a time and after she struggled with security a bit, Wilson was snapping it up with the “Creed” actor.

The Atlanta native called him “amazing” and said he was more than happy to take photos with her and her friends.

Since tweeting her images earlier this week, her post has received nearly 40,000 likes and more than 188,000 retweets.

Thanks to Wilson, many people have said they've been inspired to fearlessly click "send" on the direct messages they've been drafting. In fact, several have paid homage to her by saying they would "pull a Sylvia."
